What will you find in this report?

  • 4 key FORCES impacting the future of work
  • 14 underlying TRENDS that are accelerating
  • Key INSIGHTS and takeaways to help you plan ahead

We look at the shifting demographics creating acute talent shortages, and a generational shift in employment expectations as Gen Z workers raise the bar for issues that matter to them. We also consider tech adoption and how organisations will need to foster digital skills from within whilst seeking external talent to maximise return on investment.

“We believe equipping people with the skills to leverage technology will create a future of work that is closer to what workers of the future want; it is how we will build a path for all to increase prosperity for the many, not the few.”


Jonas Prising, Chairman and CEO, ManpowerGroup
